Dell Mini 5 Coming To T-Mobile?

Now this I didn’t see coming and have to say I’m pleasantly surprised and yet still a little hesitant to call it absolutely true. The boys over at Slashgear did a little hands on with the Dell Mini 5, a 5-inch Android phone/mini-tablet/something to watch videos on and claim it’s eventually going to support our beloved AWS bands. The modem connection has quadband GSM and then will be offered in various SKUs suited for European, AT&T or[read full article]

Motorola Handset Passes FCC, Motoroi Anyone?

While most of us have geared our attention toward the upcoming Windows Phone 7, the FCC has just passed yet another Motorola phone with AWS 3G bands. According to FCC documentation, the Motorola handset (FCC ID IHDP56Kz1) uses the same battery model as the Motorola CLIQ and Droid, so it’s most likely an Android handset. Additionally, the Motorola device will feature Quadband GSM/EDGE class 12, Triband HSDPA 7.2 Mbps 900/1700/2100, aGPS/Standalone GPS/aGPS, Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR and … [read full article]

Motorola Confirms Enhancement Update This Week

Twitter is the new place to validate old news, post new news and confirm software updates as told through this recent MotoMobile tweet. It was only last night that we hinted towards an enhancement update coming this week and now Moto has gone and confirmed exactly that.

Windows Phone 7 Buzz Is Terrific

Now here is something that captured all my tech nerd attention, Gizmodo calling Windows Phone 7 the “most groundbreaking phone since the iPhone.” I love Gizmodo and read them 85 times an hour but they, like most tech nerds are exceptionally harsh to phones and if they are saying that, I damn well believe it. So love or hate Windows Mobile, it’s gone to the fishes now and it’s prepared to be replaced by … [read full article]

Windows Phone 7 Announced, Previewed

With little surprise Windows Phone has been completely overhauled with its series “7” iteration. Unsurprisingly it’s taken on a very Zune like interface and that’s not a bad thing. If the iPhone taught us one thing, it’s that simplicity can work to your advantage if done right and Windows is certainly bringing their massive resources to bear with the future release of Windows Phone 7. Details are still forthcoming out of Mobile World Congress and we’ve got … [read full article]

Motorola Cliq XT Announced, Heading To T-Mobile As Expected

Motorola has announced this morning over at Mobile World Congress the Cliq XT, aka Zeppelin for T-Mobile. Not too much surprise here as we have had some pretty good indication this phone would make a T-Mobile US launch since the middle of January.  The name should also come as no surprise as a leaked retail slide brought us some hint that this would be the launch name. For the record, my vote would … [read full article]

First off, let’s all get on the same page and understand I am not talking about an Android update, but a maintenance update.

More to the point is that a few TmoNews readers have written in stating that … [read full article]
